For developing four new techniques that more efficiently profile the expression of RNA molecules in millions of single cells in worms, mice, and humans, mapping which genes are turned on and off in these cells throughout cell development, Junyue Cao is the grand prize winner of the 2020 Science & SciLifeLab Prize for Young Scientists.

Unlike previous methods, Cao’s technologies can track the formation of individual cells as they arise in a whole organism, without needing to isolate each cell.
